Join AGAI-AMM certified mountain guide Alessandro on this 1-day program and enjoy hiking from Santo Stefano di Sessanio to Rocca Calascio in Abruzzo, Italy.
Come with me to this 1-day program and enjoy hiking from Santo Stefano di Sessanio to Rocca Calascio in L’Aquila province, Abruzzo.
Santo Stefano di Sessanio is a medieval town inside the Gran Sasso e Monti della Laga National Park in the Abruzzo region, in southern Italy. From this town, we’ll hike to Rocca Calascio, a medieval fortress in the highest region of the Apennines. On this tour, we’ll spend the whole day exploring this fantastic area in Italy.
First, we’ll depart from Santo Stefano at 8 am. The hike will take us through Campo Imperatore, a beautiful alpine meadow above Gran Sasso Massif. While hiking, we’ll contemplate the stunning landscapes of the Apennines and get to see some of the lovely local fauna. Apart from the nature hike, we’ll also have time to explore Santo Stefano and Rocca Calascio, an amazing historical landmark. Finally, we’ll return to Santo Stefano at 4 pm.
In the summer, we’ll also have the chance to enjoy this hike on full moon nights. If you’re coming in this season, you can’t miss this thrilling experience!
Although this is not a technically difficult hike, keep in mind that it will be helpful to have a very good level of fitness. Depending on the time of the year you choose to come, we’ll find different types of obstacles, such as the wind, the cold and the rain. Also, take into account that we’ll cover a distance of around 10 kilometers and face an elevation gain of 500 meters on the hike.
So, would you like to take part of this wonderful hike? Then get in touch with me by sending the request to book your place. I’ll be happy to guide you year round!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
